Seite 3 - Reserve your proofs to a more proper season, And let them then appear. But once again We charge you, on your duty and allegiance, To stop this vile proceeding ; and to wait Till Essex can defend himself in person. If then your accusations are of force, The laws, and my consent, no doubt are open. He has my strict command, with menace mix'd, To end effectually this hated war, Ere he presume to quit the Irish coast. Bur. Madam, my duty now compels me to— Queen.
